We stayed at the Stamford Plaza on 31 December 2013 for 2 nights and have the following comments:
- Wonderful value for money.
- ALL staff were welcoming and friendly.
- Room was clean and well presented.
- Pool area was clean and well presented.
- Buffet breakfast was fresh, lots of choice and well stocked.
- Our room had a small kitchen.
- We attended the family fireworks at the MCG and found the trip to the fireworks very fast and convenient (via the tram stops just a short walk from the hotel).
- Also great location for Asian food (Chinatown) and shopping.

I have recommended the hotel to friends/family and would definitely stay again. Great value for money and conveniently located.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main building (above check in). Whilst we didn't get a view, the room was quie...

during a 6 week visit to Sydney from the UK we decided to spend 3 days in Melbourne. The Stamford Plaza was in an excellent spot for all of the shopping dining and sight seeing we wanted to do.

The suites were good with well stocked kitchens and sitting areas

The staff were very helpful, the concierge in paticular, the ameneties good.

Dear BML52
We’re delighted the luxury of our newly re-opened pool and spa facility provided you with opportunity to relax and rejuvenate after long days at the shops. There’s nothing like wrapping yourself in a nice fluffy robe after a soak in the spa to leave you feeling content and pampered – isn’t that what holidays are for?
We certainly look forward to welcoming you back again on your next trip.

Proper block-out blinds so you can sleep in. Great in-room facilities including kitchenette. Friday afternoon happy hour with free champagne! Very close to Chinatown/Greek area, CBD, Southbank - ideal location. We stayed four nights and for once I managed to sleep past 7am! I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in a central location in comfort. The hotel staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble, they're only too happy to hail a cab or draw on a map of Melbourne where you need to go to get to your destination etc. Remember to pack red shoes so you get your free champas!

Dear Merreyln T,

Exceeding expectations….That’s what we aim to do at Stamford, and it’s wonderful to get feedback such as yours that proves we do what we set out to do!
For those who don’t know– in Harry’s Bar on Friday evenings between 5.30pm and 7.30pm you will receive your first glass of Moet & Chandon FREE if you are wearing red shoes. A great deal and great way to start your Friday evening!
We look forward to having you (and your red shoes) stay with us again soon

The Stamford Plaza is a lovely hotel although a little pricy fo rthe facilities it has but I guess that depend on when you book and stay,
The room facilities are great with a fairly well equiped kitchen area, a sittingarea which is a noce change to sitting on the bed and a good comfy bed.
Good central location and would recommend for a business trip.
Only draw back is they still chage for wifi which to ne honest is just annoying and should be free given the room rates.

Dear Lee F,
It’s fantastic to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay. A great night’s sleep is very important, we get lots of great comments about our comfy beds and pillows. Both business and leisure travelers find it handy to have a separate sleeping area to living area and the kitchenette is an added bonus for those who want to make simple food in their rooms. I hope we can welcome you back on your next trip

Booked the Stamford in Melbourne for the 1st 3 days of our honeymoon in Oz... Hotel was great from the start... Arrived at 3am, concierge took bags from us and suggested relaxing in the lounge or heading out for a coffee in a local 24hr cafe... When we got back to check in, bags were delivered upstairs, bottle of fizzy to welcome us on honeymoon, all was well... Room was a junior suite, clean with every facility - 2 TV's, stocked minibar, whirlpool bath, dressing gowns and slippers, the works.... New wife was very impressed... Spent 3 very comfortable nights there before moving on and once again, concierge happily holding bags till late afternoon... We couldn't fault them and would definitely re-visit & recommend without hesitation... We'll done, Stamford

Note: we used the hotel as a base so have no comments to make on the restaurants, tending instead to sampling the many cafés and restaurants locally

Room Tip: Occasional street noise on the front of the hotel from Melbournes refuse collectors, but not excessi...

Stayed at the Stamford for one night. Location in the heart of the CBD is hard to beat and offered good value with all rooms very comfortable in terms of living space. Decor is getting a bit tired.

One thing we found strange is that there is no duvet/quilt cover on the bedding. The bed is made with a fitted sheet on the bottom, then a top sheet, then duvet/quilt, then another sheet on the top. This means the quilt can be exposed whilst you are in bed. Would have rathered a proper quilt cover on the bed to avoid exposure to a quilt which would not be cleaned as regularly as other bed linen.
